COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Double Dog Double Pale Ale Back by popular demand, our original "Wild Dog Release" is back, and this time it’s for good. Double Dog Double Pale Ale is a generously hopped ale with a deep red color and pours with a nice frothy head. The abundance of hops will conjure some provocative aromas with hints of raisins and citrus.

Rastacouere (6123) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Dark copper body, sticky and foamy irrgeular bubbles off-white head. Good looking. Huge C-hops aroma emanates minty. Hop leaves are citrusy. Not very complex, but fresh despite not showing much malt. Different on the tongue where malt is obvious, it’s actually almost fatiguingly sweet like a pie crust. Tons of citric hops, not overly bitter despite the big hops flavors. Grapefruity, lemony, bready flavors. Interesting fruitiness: kiwi, peaches. Quite piney. Well, this was rather enjoyable, quite atypical though fairly well made and tree oil reminiscent. Nice mouthfeel too, well rounded, rather creamy medium to full body displaying soft carbonation. Alright in its genre, but not too interesting to my tastebuds.

A nice citrus hop aroma greated me when I popped the cork on this one. It poured with a large head, and had a appealing dark red colour. Great lacing also. Sweet mid with a midly bitter end. Flying dog beers are usually pretty average, but this was nice.

Probably the only thing from these guys that I really enjoyed. 9% on an empty stomach may have had something to do with it... but why ruin a good thing... I will fight to urge to try another and continue to believe that there is something from Flying dog that I liked!

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2004
This was a very good beer. The aroma and flavor were very hoppy and the finish was much the same. This is worth a try.

tomxcs (320) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 2, 2004
This beer had a great citrus hop aroma. Hazy orange/dark amber color with a decent head. Very malty with lots of grapefruit flavors. I think it needs more hops to balance with the sticky sweetness but I did enjoy this beer a lot.

Pailhead (4635) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Bottle: Real big grapefruit hop aroma. Pours a hazy orangish-red with a nice off-white head with fair retention. Excellent lacing. Real sweet up fron with some sugar and orange. Has an okay hop finish. Could use more hops in the finish to balance it our a little better. Hops get a little covered up by the syrupy sweetness and citrus. As you drink the hops seem to improve and bump up my rating a little.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - NOV 30, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2007 Bottle. Pretty nice beer. First of the breweries that I have sampled. Big hoppy aroma. Hazy amber color. Decent balance between malt and hops.

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Bottle #3683. Sampled at marinaro500’s post-Thanksgiving gathering, provided by me. Well, this ended up being my last rating of the evening because of an intense episode of the hiccups (this always happens to me). Cloudy orangish body, thin/medium cream head. Heavy earthy, piney aroma. Very sweet caramely body with plenty of earthy, piney hops. Pretty intense but very typical of I2PAs and American Strong Ales. Considering it’s a Flying Dog brew, though, this was pretty good. But, please, let’s move beyond these heavily hopped beers and come up with a new trend (don’t mention barrel aging either...)!

OldGrowth (2622) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Bottle, from Manchester Wine and Liquor. Good nose, Pine, orange,carmel or butterscotch.Hints of its ABV. Clean orangy red color, just a touch of a haze. Small head that faded quickly. Bitter sweet flavors. Grapefruit,carmel,orange,burntness. Thick body, creamy sticky mouthfeel. Bitter grapefruity finish. Very nice beer. Wish I bought more. 10.99 each

badgerben (4387) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Dark amber color with a thin head. Hop and malt aroma with some spices and caramel mixed in. Very rich malt taste. It seemed a little one dimentional in the flavor, but it remains an outstandingly balanced and tasty brew.
